Good Gaming Conversations
Photo by Alex Haney
In the spirit of sharing lists of good questions this week, here’s a list from yesterday’s new article “Beyond Turn That Thing Off! Elevating the Gaming Conversation Between Parents and Kids.” Try some of these with kids you know this week, then help us improve this list. What do you think promotes good conversations between adults (youth workers, mentors, teachers, or parents) and teenagers about gaming? Here’s a start:
- What are your favorite games? What do you like about them?
- What characters do you tend to become? Why do you choose those characters?
- Who do you like to fight against? Why?
- Do you prefer to play against just one competitor or lots? Why do you think that is?
- Do you like to compete with a team or on your own? Why?
- How is video game competition similar to sports competition? How is it different?
- How does gaming make you feel? What different feelings do different games raise in you?
- How do you feel when you win a game? What about when you lose?
- If I asked your parents about the effects of video games on you and your relationships, what would they say?
- What do you wish your parents or other adults realized about video games?
- How would your life be different without video games?
- In what ways do you think gaming impacts your life with God?
